Mo Farah says that his double gold victory at the Olympics won't change him as a person.

Double Olympic champion Mo Farah has insisted that he won't change as a person after his sensational performance at London 2012.

The Team GB runner won gold in both the 10,000m and 5000m races, with the later victory labelled as one of the greatest Olympic moments in history.

However, Farah believes that he can handle being in the spotlight and won't lose his focus of the sport.

"I'll just carry on doing what I'm doing and enjoy the sport," Farah told talkSPORT.

"If [fame] comes along with it then that's the way it is.

"I'll be the same old Mo and do what I do and I'm looking forward to going to the Emirates [to see Arsenal] soon."

Great Britain finished the Games with 29 gold medals.
